Mr. Gangarossa ensures that his students know exactly what they need to know and be able to do prior to each unit. His students are given a Unit Cover Sheet that includes the following:
- the Learning Objectives for each lesson in the unit
- the Essential Vocabulary and concepts for the unit
This ensures that students know exactly what is expected of them at every point in the unit. This guides each lesson to ensure that the essential content is taught and assessed to help students identify their progress. Finally, it allows the final unit assessment to align with the essential learning objectives.
